Being the oldest defensive lineman in football is not stopping Brett Keisel from continuing his career. Keisel will be 36-years-old at the beginning of next season, and he hopes a team will take a chance at him. After 12 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Keisel’s road may have ended in the city that he began to raise his family.
Will there be any bidders for the not-so-young Keisel? In an interview with 105.1-FM Detroit, Keisel said he would not mind joining the locker room of the Detroit Lions.
“No doubt,” Keisel said. “They’ve got a great team. I really like their quarterback. They’ve got Megatron. Who wouldn’t want to play with those guys? Those guys, I think are going to make some noise next year.”
Keisel said his first choice would be with Pittsburgh, but the two-time Super Bowl champion is ready to move on if the black and gold do not give him an opportunity to be back.
Linebacker Larry Foote feels much of the same way while attempting to figure out what the Steelers’ plans may be.
“I’m quite sure some big guys are going to have to take less money,” Foote said. “Keisel, I don’t think he’s going to get what he wants or what he deserves because we’re pressed up against the cap.”
Judgment day is coming soon between the Steelers and Keisel, and according to several sources things are not looking good for the former Pro Bowler. So with that, how would “DA BEARD” look in blue and silver?
